CardioidART Pro Audio M-Two

Cardioid Condenser Microphone

ART’s M-Two is a more versatile version of the company’s M-One. Both are fixed-cardioid FET condensers. To the basic M-One design, the M-Two adds a two-position pad and a two-position high-pass filter.

The pad can cut 6 or 12dB from the mic’s signal, effectively raising the max SPL to 147dB.

The HPF cuts an aggressive 12dB/octave at either 100Hz or 200Hz.

The pad and HPF can be disabled; both are wired to 3-way switches.

Like the M-One, the M-Two is built into a zinc and aluminum body, with a grille screen made of steel wire. Both have an LED beneath the capsule to indicate when phantom power is present.

The cardioid capsule is a 32mm design, presumably single-diaphragm and center-terminated. The active diaphragm diameter is likely 27-28mm.

No frequency-response charts have been made available.

The mic ships with an elastic “cradle” shockmount in a padded aluminum flight case.

The M-Two is manufactured in China, according to the mic’s spec sheet. It was introduced at Winter NAMM, 2009.
